Lily 2 Is A New Scented Vibrator And Here's What You Need To Know About It

Share

Just as I was coming to terms with virtual reality porn and sex robots, another innovation has come out of nowhere— a scented vibrator. Yup, a scented sex toy called Lily 2. It's brought to you by Lelo, who do some of my favorite sex toys. Honestly my first reaction is a bit "WTF", because I'm really against anything that suggests you need to change the smell or taste of a vagina. But it turns out, Lelo agrees with me on this. According to them, it's more about the mood. It isn't designed to alter the taste and smell of a woman, but it's meant to set the scene before, after, and during sex.

So now I'm on board. And I kind of get it, I mean, just like people like porn because it has both visual and aural stimulation, surely the more senses that come into play the better, right? I guess it'll all depend on whether it takes away from the regular sex smells in an overpowering way, or if it's a nice complement to everything else that's going on. Anyway, it's definitely not in the weirdest sex toys I've heard of and I'm certainly interested.

Here's what you need to know:

1. It Comes In Three Scents

You can get it in: Lavendar and Manuka Honey, Bordeaux and Chocolate, and Rose and Wisteria, each with it's own color. According to Lelo "these aromas were selected because their scents have aphrodisiac properties for example the scent of lavender is known to increase blood flow to the penis and the clitoris by 11 percent increasing arousal". I like those stats.

2. It's Selling Fast

There's already a delay in shipping the Bordeaux and Chocolate flavor due to demand, according to their website.

3. There's A Lot Of Science Keeping It Safe

So the way the scent works is that's infused right into the plastic of the toy. There's a complicated process of roasting and freezing that is really interesting but totally over my head. As far as I can tell it means that they toy itself is scented but safe for contact.

4. It's Not All About The Smell

The Lily 2 has eight different vibration options and an increase in power from the original Lily. According to the website reviews, the power increase is a significant (and really satisfying) one. People seem to love it, so I'd definitely give it a go.
